"Therefore, instilling fiscal responsibility is an ethical imperative and a commitment to transparent and accountable governance.

“For me, fiscal responsibility is not just merely a concept; it is a cornerstone that should shape our decisions, policies, and strategies, ensuring the judicious management of the ministry’s resources.

“So that we can give Nigerians value for money as we conceive, develop, and implement our affordable housing and urban development plans,”

Dangiwa commended the commission’s dedication to providing an institutional framework for ensuring efficient resource allocation, and effective debt management in the country. He stated that the Ministry was eager to explore synergies between her entities and identify areas where combined expertise and mandates can create meaningful impact.

The Minister also promised to intervene on the issue of decent and affordable housing schemes for the staff of Fiscal Responsibility Commission through Federal Mortgage Bank loans and also pledged support towards the review of the 2007 Fiscal Responsibility Act.
